->I need to Know exactly how the electrical signals entering the head are transfered AND WHAT, precisely is recorded on the tape (i.e: does it punch holes? are magnetic 'fields' set on the tape? WHAT?) ->Is an analog magnetic tape recording head a TRANSDUCER under the strictest definition of a transducer? Does it change electricity into some other form of energy(in a 'not-so-strict' definition) or does it simply act like a printer, making marks on the tape? ->Do 'play' heads act the same, just in reverse, or do they act differently? ->Is 'magnetic energy' a realty? Is there really such A THING? What, if any, are the exact differences between magnetic & electric energy? From what I discovered, the two seem like one and the same, how wrong am I? -->>Please, (I'm not, but) pretend I'm extremely stupid. I really need a detailed explanation. THANKS!
Re: How does an analog magnetic tape recording head work? Precisely!
